Saint Florian Church (a.k.a.Church of Stigmatization of Saint Francis) is a small Baroque chapel built in the mid-18th century by architect Mátyás Nepauer. During the Turkish occupation of Buda, the Pashtun Magtúl Mustafa mosque occupied this site. After the conquest of Buda in 1686 by the Christians, Bosnian Franciscan monks took over the site, and 1703 began the construction of a monastery and church. The Baroque church was consecrated in 1757. In 1785 Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II gave the monastery and church to the Nursing nuns from Vienna, who transformed the monastery into a hospital, serving the area until the dissolution of the communist dictatorship in 1950. The hospital and monastery were used as a nursing home during the Hungarian People's Republic. Since 1989 the church has been serving the German-speaking Catholics in Budapest. The façade is fairly simple, with statues of St Nicholas and of St Blaise, and an onion-dome surmounting the single bell tower. The interior is elaborate in the rococo style, with marble columns, gilded saints, ornate plaster work, and large oil paintings. A depiction of Saint Francis's apotheosis appears above the main altar. Most of the Baroque furnishings (altars, pulpit and benches) were fashioned by the monks in their workshops. The church is open daily with no entry fee, although a donation is gratefully appreciated.

This Greek Catholic chapel is on the Main Street, not too far from the Margit Boulevard end of it.
Initially made for the tomb of Anton Christ, but eventually, he wanted a larger church Meanwhile; however, he died and left his money on this chapel, dedicated to the holy Florian, the patron saint of firefighters. It was built in Baroque style and featured some beautiful paintings, wall paintings and an imposing pulpit inside the church.
